It's all about love

Witty Jack is back and tipsier than ever! "Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End" is perhaps the best of the trilogy. I usually think sequels are going to be bad, but in this case it was good. Johnny Depp (pirate captain Jack Sparrow) did his best in this one. The acting is great.

The main cast members are back from the first two "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, including Keira Knightley as young Englishwoman Elizabeth Swann, Orlando Bloom as blacksmith-turned-reluctant-pirate Will Turner, Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa, heartless captain of the pirate ship Black Pearl, and Bill Nighy as Davy Jones.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" has a lot of action in it, and that's what I like to see in this kind of movie. The thing I really like is I finally understand the mood this time. It's love ... well, love and betrayal. Everyone is after something they want, and many of the characters even betray friends to get their way. That's what a pirate is all about.

The movie is also very funny. Depp never ceases to amuse his audiences. "At World's End" is full of unexpected twists and I couldn't tell who was betraying who.

On of the cool things about the movie is that Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards had a role as Jack's dad, Capt. Teague. Richards is the model Depp said he used to develop the Jack Sparrow character.

The only thing I don't like is the end. Not just because the story is over, but because it confuses the heck out of me. I've heard it's supposed to be the last movie in the series, yet the way "At World's End" ended makes me think we might see Jack Sparrow again.
